End of the class of 2007, explained: does the group survive?

Created by Kacie Anning, ‘Class of ’07’ is an Australian survival comedy that revolves around a cast of characters after an apocalyptic flood washes them up on their old high school campus. The show features Emily Browning, Megan Smart, and Caitlin Stasey front and center alongside various other hilarious actresses. Ridge High’s class of girls from 2007 reunites after a decade for their high school reunion – however, their party is soon crushed as a cataclysmic weather disaster strikes and drowns all around their school. With their mountaintop campus turned into a floating island, the women are stuck with each other and must try to survive.

‘Class of ’07’ takes a gendered take on the classic ‘Lord of The Flies’ premise, but instead of teenagers, presents audiences with a cast of middle-aged women with heavy teenage baggage. The show easily captures audiences’ attention with its interesting characters, and so if you want to know more about where this bizarre journey takes these women, here’s everything you need to know about the ending of ‘Class of ’07. SPOILERS AHEAD!

Class of ’07 Plot Synopsis

The story begins with Zoe, a contestant on a reality TV show, collapsing after losing. After completely embarrassing herself on TV, Zoe decides to move to the middle of nowhere in order to get away from social ridicule. However, a few months after her voluntary exile, one day, she notices disturbing environmental disturbances and drives to the nearest evacuation center: her old high school. Unknowingly stumbling into his own high school 10-year reunion, Zeo reconnects with his old friends, Saskia, Sandy, Teresa, and ex-best friend Amelia. The group, though at first unaware of the danger unfolding outside, soon realize that while they were busy partying, the outside world was inundated.

Genevieve, the meeting organizer, tries to ration food and water while Amelia and Zoe, with constant tension between them, try to get the radio going to call for help. Meanwhile, Sandy, an American student on exchange with an influencer dog, acts as an obstacle to everything around with her constant whining, and Phoebe selfishly uses their limited power supply. All their attempts to survive are destroyed by petty arguments and general intolerance. With the responsibility for their collective survival now in their individual hands, the group immediately begins to descend into chaos and ruin without a clear leader to guide them. Eventually, Saskia, an ex-bully turned owner of a bought-out ethical startup, takes on the role, knowing she has to go back to some of her old ways of doing it.

However, she regresses a bit too well and ends up putting a passed out Sandy on a rowboat, and with Zoe’s help pushes Sandy out to sea, essentially writing out her death certificate. Now the two must keep their actions a secret while building a livable environment and keeping everyone alive. What follows is a deep dive into high school trauma, dwindling friendships, and general anarchy, all set against the backdrop of an apocalyptic, hopeless world.

Explanation of the end of the class of 2007: does the group survive?

Throughout this show’s various storylines and its basic premise of survival, we see the inner clique of 07 Ridge High students – Zoe, Amelia, Saskia, Phoebe, Genevieve, Renee, Teresa, Megan, and Tegan are subdued to many trials. Saskia manages to keep everyone alive and thriving for a few months with her effective, if bordering on authoritarian, leadership. After the “nerds” assigned to the group manage to find a way to use the electricity, they hook it up to several elliptical machines which they use to power the radio and other items. Each individual must recharge their batteries with their workouts and, as an incentive, exchange them for goods and luxuries. However, Saskia’s ways are soon questioned by Genevieve, who thinks Saskia’s rules are harmful while still harboring a grudge against Saskia for the way she treated Genevieve 10 years ago.

The story quickly takes a legal turn, with the group now trying to prosecute Saskia when they begin to suspect she might have something to do with Sandy’s disappearance. Their mob rule is only stopped by Amelia who defends Saskia regardless of their less than pleasant relationship and demands a fair trial for Saskia. This plotline brings several emotional epiphanies and discoveries for the group – and a real-life discovery that their former high school teacher, Sister Bicky, is living with them on campus without their knowledge. With the help of Sister Bicky, the group grows crops and raises chickens and soon begins to survive sustainably.

But things rarely have a way of working out for these women, and a month or two into this lifestyle, things erupt into more chaos and inevitably take a cynical turn. After realizing that their radio signals may have been for nothing and that they are alone with no one coming to help them, the group decides to have one last “Last Day on Earth” party and abandon the survival. Zoe tries to discourage this plan but is frozen out by the group, now led by Amelia. By the time they realize there may still be hope, they are out of food and have killed their very last chicken.

With their outdoor doom impending, most of the former students except our inner clique – and Forgettable Laura – escape the island on boats and canoes. Managing to survive without food for a few days, the group is now on the verge of death from organ failure. However, before things get really dark, they finally receive a radio signal from the other survivors. But when this crew of survivors – half a dozen men in a boat – shows up on their shore, they sense trouble. In the end, the women, realizing the danger these strangers can pose to their island, take whatever weapons they can find, ready to fight. The show ends with an opening for another season, but the characters, as we leave them, survive until the end and seem more than willing to continue surviving in the future as well.

Why did Amelia disappear in high school?

Amelia’s disappearance during her senior year of high school is first mentioned in the pilot episode, then continues to be a plot point for a few episodes. Amelia, who was Zoe’s best friend, had once left school without a goodbye. This event is the main reason for the conflict between Zoe and Amelia throughout the series and plays an important role in their character development.

There have been plenty of rumors floating around – Amelia left because she had an affair, because she got pregnant – however, we don’t get a real answer until Sister Bicky shows up. . Sister Bicky makes her presence known following a lawless service of justice against Saskia and Genevieve, where they were about to have their heads shaved in penance for their crimes. In an effort to discipline the women and show them the error of their ways, the sister has them dig up the old time capsule they stored 10 years ago as high school students. The group walks around reading their letters – or refusing to read them – and finally, the sister urges Amelia to take her turn.

Amelia reminds Sister Bicky that she doesn’t have one because she had to drop out of high school at that time. This leads to the accidental disclosure of the reason for Amelia’s sudden departure. Amelia’s mother had committed suicide. In an emotionally ripe sequence between Amelia and Zoe, the audience discovers that Amelia’s mother had been chronically depressed, something she also passed on to Amelia, and had taken her own life. Amelia’s family hadn’t wanted anyone to know, so they had kept it a secret.

What becomes of Sandy?

Sandy, the American exchange student, was generally hated by everyone. Once the apocalypse hit, she ended up being an obstacle to everyone else’s survival. So when Saskia decides to take on the role of leader, she comes to the conclusion that Sandy has to go. Saskia and a confused Zoe put Sandy on a rowboat and let her float across the ocean. As the months pass, everyone assumes that Sandy must have died. However, six months later, a harassed and transformed Sandy shows up on the island seeking revenge on the group. She burns through their food supplies and lies to them about the lack of help there, dragging everyone into their fatalistic spiral.

Plus, not only is Sandy alive and has become an experienced survivor, but she’s also pregnant now. When she returns to the island, it’s not just to make things miserable for the group, but also to take Teresa with her to help raise her child. Teresa has always wanted to be a mother, and that takes up most of her storytelling on the show. His role in the survival of the group is therefore to take care of the food and feed everyone. Teresa and Sandy were friends in high school, but Sandy always resented Teresa for never standing up for her when Saskia and Zoe were awful to her. Still, Sandy knows she can’t raise a child on her own and that Teresa has always wanted to be a mother, so she comes back for her. In the end, Sandy and Teresa agree to raise the child together on earth as a team.
